ESSnetAdmin dataThe Use of administrative and Accounts Data for Business Statistics Presented by: Pieter Vlag Statistics Netherlands
Aim of ESSnet The ESSnet has been set up in order to develop best practices and make recommendations in the uses of administrative and accounts data in the production of business statistics. 2009 – 2012

Scope of work package-What is timeliness • Division into two problems: • For monthly and quarterly (STS) estimates the register data are incomplete because • 1. The administrative data are by definition incomplete for monthly and/or quarterly reporting periods • (EXAMPLE: in many EU-countries small enterprises may declare VAT on a quarterly/yearly base) • 2.The administrative data are incomplete because are not yet available for (flash and regular) STS-estimates • (EXAMPLE: first STS-estimate = T+ 30; register data complete T+40) • MOST COMMON: combination of 1. and 2.
ESSnet Admin DataWorkpackage : STS-estimates • Description of work • Describe best practices for estimation of STS-variables from adm. sources if`due to the timeliness problem • turnover variable is not yet (completely) availabe in VAT registration. • - employment variable (wages, persons employed) are not yet (completely) available in social security administrative sources • Transforming best practices into recommendations (“research” subject) • Best practices for revision strategy: • How do you revise data when more data are available
ESSnet Admin DataWorkpackage : STS-estimates OBSERVATION: Survey data: NSIs do have control about timeliness Admin data: NSIs don’t have (complete) control about timeliness Practical implications: a. admin data for monthly and quarterly STS-estimates are (often) incomplete b. availability of admin data for STS-estimates differs per country CHALLENGE: Are recommendations possible, taking into account the ‘national’ differences ?
ESSnet Admin DataWorkpackage : STS-estimates ACTIONS Case study between UK and NL (for details see paper) Contacts and visits to other countries (DE, EST, FI, IT, LT) to check whether experiences and solutions for NL-UK are recognizable. Development of a framework to be worked out in 2010-2011 by DE, EST, FI, LT, NL, UK
CASE STUDY NETHERLANDS until 2009: VAT reporter yearly if VAT-remittance < € 1883,= year quarterly if VAT-remittance <= € 7000,= quarter monthly if VAT-remittamce > € 7000,= quarter + “special cases” 1.1.2009 threshold M -> Q increased to € 15000,= from 2009 – Q3 year if VAT-remittance < € 1883,= year Quarter general monthvoluntary + “special cases” ? TIMELINESS <= 30 days after reporting period
CASE STUDY NETHERLANDS Quarterly turnover estimates-benchmarking system (prototype producion) Monthly estimates – in research Survey largest enterprises + nowcasting (approach Stat. Finland) Survey largest enterprises + quarterly system (modified) Survey largest enterprises + small survey other ent. , low aggregation levels after quarter (approach Stat. Sweden) VAT t-12 VAT t MM data data + est. MQ panels QM QQ Mx stopping Qx xM starting xQ
CASE STUDY UNITED KINGDOM Monthly declarations (limited) + 3 three-month periods (“staggers”) Timeliness: 40 days after declaration period
CASE STUDY UNITED KINGDOM - Research to be done (small enterprises) • CONCLUSION: after splining the ‘staggers’ into monthly data -> similar methodological problems as in the Netherlands • If representative: approach Dutch benchmark methodology possible • If not: nowcasting or small survey
OTHER COUNTRIES Estonia: Review position –good knowledge of admin data Germany: Use of VAT for quarterly turnover estimates (section H,J – M,N partly) -> focus: improvement + starters/stoppers Italy: OROS-system (employment) Lithuania: VAT for monthly estimates with regression estimator (auxilliary) information) employment register Finland (consultant): expertise in use of VAT for STS (quarter + month) collaboration: t+30days monthly estimates
Framework to be worked out by DE, EST, IT, LT, NL, UK Inventory Legislation, availability NSI, stability time-series adm. Data Example VAT1 1 VAT can be replaced by empl Analyses Work UK - NL transf to STS periods VAT Almost complete coverage VAT no complete coverage VAT < threshold VAT only not representative or cannot be modelled representative or can be modelled with benchmarking without benchmarking (GREG-type) Est. Survey (t,t-x) (GREG-type) Est. VAT (t,t-x) no VAT possible Nowcasting Benchmarking for quality 1st res. Benchmarking for transf. Q -> M
Example: The Netherlands 2010 - VAT Inventory Legislation, availability NSI, Stabilitytime-series adm. Data Example VAT Like deliverable I - 2009 Analyses Quarter – deliverable II - 2009 Month transf to STS periods VAT Almost complete coverage VAT no complete coverage VAT < threshold VAT only not representative or cannot be modelled representative or can be modelled with benchmarking without benchmarking (GREG-type) Est. Survey (t,t-x) (GREG-type) Est. VAT (t,t-x) no VAT possible Nowcasting Benchmarking for quality 1st res. Benchmarking for transf. Q -> M
Strategy – next step Quarterly turnover estimates (adm. data almost complete coverage): Germany describes its method -> comparison with NL and FI Employment: Italy describes its method -> comparison with LT Monthly turnover estimates (adm. data with no complete coverage): Netherlands describes its ideas -> comparison with IT and FI Regression estimator + revising results Lithuania describes its method -> “comparison” NL Practices: F, NO, DK
Challenge Establishing the link between availability admin data and STS-estimates When established, comparing practices to improve them Providing recommendations
